Video: A Human Spirit Film – Blind Ambition

Words by Absa Bank | Images by Absa Bank

Hein Wagner was born blind, but, rather than seeing it as a disability, has chosen to view it as a challenge.

And Hein knows about challenges. As a true global adventurer, he has finished numerous Ironman competitions, completed the Cape-to-Rio Sailing Challenge and is the current World Blind Land Speed Record Holder. As a corporate motivational speaker, Hein shares his unique and remarkable experiences about his various adventures, none of which proved more difficult than the world’s toughest mountain bike race, the Absa Cape Epic. Done on a dare from his riding partner, Gerrie Olivier, Hein recounts the emotional story of courage, tears and triumph.
